Memorial Day Weekend at South Coast Botanic Garden

Saturday was the beginning of the long 2013 Memorial Day weekend and since Tanya has been working pretty hard getting her new book, Faces of Juicing, ready for publishing, we decided to take advantage of the great weather and pay another visit to the South Coast Botanic Garden on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. The South Coast Botanic Garden is huge with over 40,000 trees and 200,000 plants, so we are able to return several times a year and it always looks at least a little different as different plants bloom at different times of the year. There are several species of birds there with hummingbirds that seem to enjoy toying with my thoughts of being able to get a good photo of one.

Tanya enjoys the time since she has been pain-free for the last few months, so we will take advantage of it while we can. The watermark on the photos is donated to the Rheumatoid Patient Foundation since it is the only charity looking out for those with Rheumatoid Disease and it is Tanya’s favorite charity.

Meetup with the Original Sinners RC

My regular readers are probably aware that our business networking group, Business & Beer, recently joined Meetup.com in an attempt to build on the number of attendees at our weekly gatherings. For those unaware of what Meetup is, it is an online social media site that allows people with common interests to set up offline gatherings. In other words, a social media portal that actually encourages you to get away from Facebook and Twitter for a while. Whether you are looking for a business networking group or people to hunt butterflies with you, there is a good chance meetup.com can help you. When I was perusing the many Meetup groups in my area, I came across the Original Sinners RC (Riding Club), which is a subsidiary of the Original Sinners MC (Motorcycle Club).

I had to ask how a motorcycle club found its way to using social media and discovered that a few of the Original Sinners previously joined another group of motorcycle enthusiasts via Meetup. For some reason that I do not recall, these few splintered off and formed the Original Sinners MC. They then decided to utilize Meetup to find additional people to ride with and hopefully find new members to the actual club. Continue reading

Is it Spring yet?

The almanac says spring does not begin this year until March 20; but with the weather we have been having around here, you could have surprised me. It was almost summer-like around here over the weekend. Since Tanya’s RA/RAD has not been bothering her lately, she has wanted to take advantage of the great weather and the lack of pain by spending more time outside. Sunday we took another trip to the South Coast Botanic Garden on the Palos Verdes Peninsula in Palos Verdes Estates.

The South Coast Botanic Garden is 87 acres of trees, flowers, birds, lizards, squirrels and a pond. At least, that is what we have found so far. On prior visits we were pretty limited as to how much exploring we could do because the garden has a lot of hills and the grades were too steep for her to be able to walk up and down them. For her to be able to carry her camera with a heavy lens and an external flash while walking up and down the hills was quite the fete. She is really enjoying being pain free.

The watermark on these photos was donated to the Rheumatoid Patient Foundation, the only charity for those suffering from Rheumatoid Disease. Continue reading
